Is ABC Splitting Up Together with the Kids Are Alright?
November 7th, 2018 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

ABC debuted 7 new shows this fall and today the final one found out its fate. That show is Kids Are Alright that got the bottom nine bringing their total to 22 episodes. The frosh was not the only show to get additional episodes today. Splitting Up Together was asked to do 5 more episodes.

The two sitcoms join (with their total episodes for the season) The Conners, 11, A Million Little Things, 17, The Rookie, 20 and Single Parents, 22.

Wait, that is only six shows, so what is missing? ABC banished Alec Baldwin’s talk show was banished to Saturdays yesterday.


A Million Little Things only gets 4 more episodes

For most the summer A Million Little Things was the worst new show of the season. Then I saw a comedy and a drama that were worse. Well, I guess even though I hated the show, a few million people disagreed with me. That is because ABC picked up the depressing drama for 4 more episodes. They say it is a full season, but on average a full season is 18-22+ episodes.

Which makes me think that this is a placeholder because Rookie is not doing as well as they expected.

I will say two positive things about the show, it has a great cast and excellent music.


The third new show to get a full season pick up is…

Last week, NBC picked up Manifest for a full season and CBS did the same with FBI. Today, we raise a wine glass to Single Parents because ABC asked them to stick around too.

Is the news a surprise? Nope, because it continually does well after Modern Family. As it should because it gets better with each episode. While the pilot was a little better than OK, the second episode and third episodes were better than the ones before it.

A big reason why is that there is a lot of chemistry between the cast. They play really well off of each other which makes the brilliant lines given to them even funnier.

If you have never seen the show, then check it out tonight at 9:30p on ABC. I promise you will get a few laughs from it.


The Conners is not the only new show on ABC tonight
October 16th, 2018 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

After The Conners at 8p on ABC, it is time to get to know The Clearys in The Kids Are Alright. They are an Irish-Catholic family trying to survive in 1972.

Mike Cleary (Michael Cudlitz) and Peggy (Mary McCormack) are the parents to seven boys and they are trying to get them to all turn out OK. The oldest one was studying to be a priest, but not he has dropped out of school and moved home. The middle one is has a sense for drama and wants to be more artsy.

I would give more of a description but after watching two episodes, I don’t know or care what it is about and who any of the boys are. Too many kids and none that stand out like they were able to do on Just the Ten of Us. Talking about old sitcoms, it reminds me of The Wonder Years, but not as good.

Therefore, ABC better hope The Conners is a smash hit because their Tuesday night is going to need it.

Then at 9p, Black-ish is back for its 5th season. Now that they sent Zoey (Yara Shahidi) away to a Grown-ish college, it is time for Junior to do the same.

Since Marcus Scribner did not get his own sitcom and they cannot lose another kid, he has decided to take a gap year. When Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) find out about it, they lose it. They do everything to get him to go back to school. Who will win this fight?

Now that Jack (Miles Brown) and Diane (Marsai Martin) are getting older, the twins begin to ponder if the should they should no longer share a bedroom together.

Black-ish remains consistent and ABC needs to this on this night.

Then at 10p, Nathan Fillion returns to ABC on The Rookie. Instead of playing a consultant to the NYPD, now he is a cop working for the LAPD.

John Nolan (Fillion) life seems over because he and his wife get divorced. On the day the divorce is final, the bank he is in gets held up. He confronts the bank robber and decides to move across the country to become a cop. Something that is not as easy to do when you are 40.

Now that he has finished the academy, it is time for him to work the beat. He gets assigned to Talia Bishop (Afton Williamson) and she is not going to make his life easy. Don’t worry he will not make her life easy either. He is over eager, over the hill and under experienced. Three things that will get them both in trouble.

Are the streets safer with him on them or more dangerous? You will have to tune in to find out.

The Rookie is your average cop show from the ’90s. Nothing great, but nothing that makes you say I have to watch it every week like you did Castle. If you want something to help put you to sleep on Tuesday nights, then this is perfect for you.


The Splitting Up Together cast gets their Breakfast Club on!
October 16th, 2018 under ABC, Oliver Hudson. [ Comments: none ]

Jenna Fischer, Oliver Hudson, Dean Holland, Lindsay Prince and Bobby Lee saw some red lockers and they knew what they had to do. The cast of Splitting Up Together had to recreate the poses that the cast of The Breakfast Club made over 30 years ago.

How did they do? Even Assistant Principal Vernon would excuse them from detention.

Hopefully tonight at 9:30p on ABC, there will be two hits. Them hitting the airwaves, and then them being a hit!

And can we talk about how Oliver Hudson is so a John Bender? Actually, they are all like the characters they chose to pose as.
